We have been studying Ancient History this year. So far we have made it through Genesis and Exodus, studying the Ancient Sumerians and Ancient Egyptians as we went. I am excited to be headed to the book of Joshua now, and beginning to study Ancient Greece!
Most days I assign a copywork page to my son, but sometimes I switch things up by doing some other sort of writing assignment. (He is still very young and I know that he can only handle one major writing task per day, though I see him increasing his abilities all the time!) One of the things I had him do some days was a notebooking page.
I love notebooking pages because they let your child express what they have learned creatively and without feeling like they are being tested. When my son does copywork, I make sure that everything is copied correctly, but with pages like these I let him work without any criticism or critique. I really just want to see if he has absorbed anything that I have read =)
I created these pages (because that's how I roll) as we went along in our studies, and I wanted to share them with you before I moved on and forgot about them!
There are three pages, each with a picture, lines to write, and a box to draw a picture in. You could assign your child something particular to write and draw, or let them retell what they have learned in whatever way they wish.
- The Nile River
- Baby Moses in the Nile
- Moses and the Burning Bush
These are just pages that I created when I felt like assigning a notebooking page to my son. I was not trying to capture each event in the book of Exodus, but if this is something that you would enjoy, I would love to make more for you! Please let me know if these are a benefit to your family!
